Shes Leaving Me: A Four-Stage Treatment Model for Men Struggling with Relationship Loss
by Steve Lerner
Renowned family therapist Steve Lerner presents his work with men who are in crisis after being left by their wives or partners. 
Using excerpts from a clinical interview with a client who was left by his wife, as well as an actual family session including the now-divorced couple, their young son, and each of their respective new partners, Lerner cogently demonstrates his unique four-stage approach for helping men to cope more adaptively with the end of a marriage or significant relationship.
